I’m not a foodie, so maybe I come across as simply naive when I say a lot of food dishes seem love gimmicks.
For instance, the French practice of flambe got famous on TV cooking shows over the past thirty years. It involves using alcohol on the dish so it’s served on fire with red sparks. The dish is lit once it’s placed on the customer’s table, adding to the “wow factor” of the food. After seeing it done to death on TV, it wasn’t even impressive to me when I finally saw it in person for the first time when dining with our extended family for the holidays. Everyone at the table was noticeably stirred plus gleeful by the event, but I was instantly bored when I realized what was going on. Similar to how I suppose about gimmicky food dishes, I’m also annoyed by cannabis products that I suppose are equally deranged. Dab tabs are 1 such example, as they’re little, porous ceramic tablets that have been soaked in high THC cannabis distillate. You drop 1 in a cannabis concentrate vaporizer plus you get an instant “dab.” In reality, using an oil syringe is simply easier, plus there’s no risk of ceramic getting in your lungs. I thought that moon rocks were equally gimmicky until I finally tried them at our buddy’s birthday celebration last week. A moon rock is a cannabis flower bud that is soaked in distillate oil plus then rolled in kief. The distillate oil absorbs into the bud plus the kief hardens on the outside. They’re sticky plus difficult to work with, but they’re extremely potent for strong sessions where you need instant pain relief.
